How do you get the the Hosts file, i've tried editing it (for parnks) sake but i can't get it to work. Basicall i tried to add an entry for www.yahoo.com and put it's IP address as the site for www.barney.com but it won't work.
If you could tell me how to get into the right hosts file it'd really help. I'm running XP if it helps.

You have to set the Hosts file to your ISP's DNS server. Type ipconfig at the command line to get it.
